Today, is our first official day of Summer! After school yesterday, we treated ourselves to chocolate ice cream shakes at Sonic (they’re buy 1 get 1 free and you know how much I love me some deals) and late last night my son says, “Mom, I wish we could have some ice cream.” His eyes were in shock when I said, “Well, it IS Summer, your wish is my command!” I tapped him on his head with my imaginary wand and broke out a tub of Mint Chocolate Chip.
It’s Summer and we’re extraordinarily excited, but we also know that Summer can be a time of dangerous heat. Before we left our Elementary, for the last time, we wanted to arm our favorite teachers with something they could use, something that would make them smile, and something that would keep them hydrated.
As an Aquafina Mom, Mom Central has showered us with all kinds of Aquafina goodies including: samples of water, lip balm, coupons for free water, and, this week, we received an insulated bag to carry our water when we’re out and about in the sun.
This week, the Flavor of the Week is Grape. As a family, we wanted to share these goodies with some pretty important people like our Teachers and Bus Driver. So, we did a little something like this:
It was pretty simple and cost effective. You’re probably thinking Yeah, because you’re an Aquafina Mom and got all the stuff for free. You’re correct on that, however, something like this can be made with a very small budget.

What kind of cost-effective gifts did you come up with this year for your teachers?
